Division A, Right Side Results

The Right Side was a mixed bag — old v. new, fast v. slow, long v. short.  And it seems that the People do not like long songs.  Although we lost some voters to the weekend, we still had a respectable 28 voters this round.  Keep sharing the word and inviting your friends to join in our fun!

The match-up that I was watching most closely was “Jolene” by Ray LaMontagne against “Dog Days are Over” by Florence and the Machine.  I nominated “Jolene” and I had my fingers crossed for it all weekend.  The songs were neck and neck and voters seemed to like both — “Jolene” even made it to the not-yet-created Wall of 10’s.  But alas, at the very last minute, the lovely Ms. Florence (and her Machine) roused to defeat Mr. LaMontagne, with a score of 205.8 to Ray’s 190.55.  Ray fans, despair not — he still has one song left in the Tournament.

Wheel was victorious over City & Colour, “Stuck in the Middle with You” had 197.3 to “That Girl’s” 177.6.  And finally, Marc Broussard’s “Home” sent Norman Greenbaum and his “Spirit in the Sky” packing, 193.3 to 181.7.

Eliminated from the Tournament:  Television, City and Colour, and Norman Greenbaum.
